Reading Takes Flight is a contest and initiative done annually in support of 'I Love to Read Month.' The program positively encourages children to develop an interest in reading. Every season students and teachers in Winnipeg and surrounding areas are invited to enter for a chance to host a member of the Winnipeg Jets for a classroom visit. During the school visits, players read the official Winnipeg Jets children's storybook "Whiteout: A Winnipeg Jets Story".
